To me, the migration of 3D CGI out of 2D Hand-Drawn is a display of laziness. Yes, creating CGI animating is quite complicated on the computer...
All due respect, but I don't think you understand how computer animation is done. If you did, you would understand that this is no way related to "laziness." As someone who actively practices both techniques, it is impossible to say that one is more complicated or "true" than the other.
Tangled would have grossed 4 times that if it was hand drawn.
As others have said, this is such an incredibly ridiculous claim that I can't believe I'm putting the time in right now to respond. You can't possibly believe that not only does traditional animation not have a negative effect on box office returns, but that it actually has an overwhelmingly positive
effect on returns. To claim that Tangled would have made AVATAR numbers is absolutely asinine. I wish people here would stop just flat out making stuff up for the purpose of backing up their ridiculous fandoms.
The story works, the characters looked good on paper, but the CGI characters is what bothered moste people on this film.
Again, a ridiculous claim. Outside of the handful of people on this forum, find me someone that had anything negative to say about the CG aspects of this movie. It did NOT "bother most people". The film is stunningly beautiful. It has been widely acclaimed throughout the industry for having the best CG human animation to date. The characters in the film have already proved that they are lasting favorites among fans and children alike.
If you seriously STILL hold a grudge against CG animation in 2012, then fine. But at least attempt
to look at this objectively. You aren't even trying. You're blatantly blasting fanboy statistics and claims that have no grounding in reality. I'd love to have a nice, thought out debate with someone here about the merits of CG animation vs. traditional animation, but that unfortunately can never happen because of the immaturity level and blatant disregard for objectivity.
